U.S. Developing Microchips To Inject Soldiers

May 8, 2012 by  

U.S. Developing Microchips To Inject Soldiers
Researchers have developed implantable machines, powered by wireless technology, that are small enough to traverse veins.

The United States government is working on a plan to develop smarter, stronger and healthier soldiers by injecting them with tiny health-monitoring microchips.

With the help of scientists at the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) the military is working to create nanosensors that will monitor soldiers’ health on the battlefield to keep military doctors constantly informed about potential health problems.

DARPA calls the implants a radical innovation and says that the health-monitored soldiers could change the state of modern warfare by cutting back on the number of medical conditions resulting from ordinary illnesses and disease.

The technology will be similar to technology unveiled by researchers at Stanford University earlier this year. The researchers have developed implantable machines, powered by wireless technology, that are small enough to traverse veins.

DARPA is also building on research done by pharmaceutical companies that are working to develop “smart pills” that could read vitals or even administer medicines from within the body. Californian start-up Proteus Medical and Swiss drug maker Novartis have developed one such “smart pill” which includes a sensor that sends vitals to a skin patch worn by the patient. The skin patch can then send the information to a smartphone.

    “DARPA is also building on research done by pharmaceutical companies that are working to develop “smart pills” that could read vitals or even administer medicines from within the body.”

    It’s just a matter of time before the general population will be forced to endure this. Huxley’s “Brave New World,” intended as a warning, has become the guidebook for the statists.

    • cynicac

      What if the pill indicates that you need a laxitive?

  • Steve E

    I would take my chances without the chip. Thank you.

    • Donald York

      You soldiers better reject this. It WILL be used for evil purposes also. Think about what you’re allowing this government do to you.

      • cawmun cents

        Dont you think that it will be just like watching nuclear bombs explode in the Nevada desert?
        No big deal.
        Just a lifetime of suffering afterward!

      • Christin


        Guess they are using the soldiers as guinea pigs to try out their “control chip’.

        Sounds like they don’t like the military guys too much…

        Maybe they will become sick with the chip or possibly ‘they’ will keep a watch on each guy like a GPS and give their location away and set up an ambush and kill them…
        Then they could not come home and protect us.

        Chip = Mark of the Beast
        Say NO WAY

  • Sirian

    This has come up before and there are numerous sources of information that can lead you into believing that it will be good for all. But in essence, no, it will be the exact opposite. What is being proposed is simply a form of governmental control by enabling itself to track any individual, be they in the military or otherwise. When you have become implanted, you then become another member of the tagged herd. Once marked, your life is no longer yours.

    • Jerry K. Jackson

      My thoughts exactly when I read the article. Hack the system and track the soldiers to eliminate. Patriot1776 is also correct. This is so bizarre. Biblical prophecy coming to us posthaste!

    Dont get me started ranting about this again.BTDT(been there done that)

    • cawmun cents

      Just a passing thought folks.
      If gubment controls the healthcare industry,then what is heeping them from introducing this new technology into nearly everyone without [implied consent]?
      (I got that one from the always ingenious GALT,who hasnt really spoken much of this kind of invasive behavior,kinda remeinds me of something I may have eluded to some time ago….)
      Stupid me,for asking the questions,right?

      • Sirian

        That’s the basic intent. Nano-tech implants. In simple terms, you won’t know what you’re getting. . . SURPRISE!!!

      • 45caliber


        “implied consent” – consent is implied if you haven’t protested.

        I ran into that with my kids’ school about 25 years ago now. What they were doing at the school was basically illegal – but they got away with it by “implied consent”. If the parents didn’t protest, then they went ahead. What they were doing was placing kids in various class levels from A through H. A class did ALL homework in a book. B class did half of it. H class was expected to complete two chapters of the book in a year with no homework.

        Needless to say, H class students weren’t learning a thing while the A class students spent about 4 hours a day on homework (they were the most intelligent kids so they could do it!). My wife and I were considered troublemakers because we refused to allow them to stick our kids where they wanted them.

    If it sends anything, it’ll be tracking info as to where you are as well. If it can ‘administer’ drugs, then it could be insructed to dump it all into you at once, as a ‘kill switch’ if you got off the reservation.
    Welcome to total government control sci-fi become reality,
    Click the name.

  • Patriot1776

    Can you say “Mark of the Beast?” Government needs to focus on reducing it’s size, reducing our Federal debt, a strong military to defend our sovereign nation. With every tick of the second hand our freedoms are being eroded away.

    • Sirian

      I agree with you but there is one small, or should I say major problem though – the government, controlling members thereof, will never want to reduce their size – never! We The People are the only ones that can do that. And that in and of itself is a problem – how many actually want to downsize our government? Would it be viewed by the unwitting as to great of a risk in losing their SS or Medicare/Medicaid? Follow me?? Yep, it’s a solvable problem but as to how long it would take is another unknown. Essentially, we can’t solve a problem with a 100 year history overnight.

      • Robert Smith

        From Sirian: “Essentially, we can’t solve a problem with a 100 year history overnight.”

        Sure we can. Polio in historical terms was wiped out relatively that quick.


      • Sirian

        Perhaps so but let me ask you this, would you be willing to take a vaccine for the disease of Progressivism as willingly as the vaccine for polio?

      • Vigilant

        Sirian, RS’ argument is the shopworn non sequitur of “if we can pit a man on the Moon, we should be able to….”

        RS has the simplistic view that marshalling resources to address a medical problem is the same as setting your sights on a political disease with hopes of curing it overnight. Only myopic progressives live in such a reductionist, one-dimensional; fantasy.

      • Sirian

        Oh I know Vigilant, that’s why I posed that question to him. It’s honestly fun to see what the utopians come up with. Fantasy? What else?

      • Nancy in Nebraska

        Not only is polio making a comeback in people who are being vaccinated but now they’re calling it something else to hide the true numbers. I will receive NO vaccines and if I had kids today I wouldn’t allow them to be vaccinated either!

      • Robert Smith

        Libertytrain says: ““Vaccine-Caused Polio on the Rise…”

        Not really. Very few cases. Not in America: “IPV, which is given as a shot, is now used in the United States. OPV has not been used in the United States since 2000 but is still used in many parts of the world.”


    • Robert Smith

      From Patriot: “Can you say “Mark of the Beast?””

      Yup. I remember that was the cry from the extreme right as opposition to a universal ID was mounted.

      NOW the extreme right wants such an ID to keep them there ferrigners in check.

      Sheesh… How bigotry trumps religion that trumps common sense.


      • cawmun cents

        Yeah bob,as you draw the conclusion that religion and science are now(yet somehow never previously)dancing arm and arm,to the same end,we cant help but notice that there is a willingness for this type of technology to be tested on our young military folks.
        Yes evil religion has got together with beautiful science,to plague the youth of our growingly militarized nation,so that we can thwart the obviously utopian dream of socialism and living together like Hippies in a commune.
        You are a genius for bringing this to our attention!
        I raise a toast to Robert Smith,a true pioneer in detection of evil intent…..

      • Rick in MN (USAF/ret)

        Absolutely agree with you Rob. See my post a bit further down. I posted it before I read any of the other posts but IT IS the mark of the beast! I was involuntarily injected 3 times with the anthrax vaccine while over in the middle east. My health was always great up to that point. Starting right afterwards I developed a number of allergies I’d never had before, strange recurring ear infections, joint and muscle problems that so far have resulted in two knee surgeries for deteriorating cartilage/meniscuses, I can’t run anymore even though I’ve tried on numerous occasions, and the gov’t denies that any of those problems are the results of the vaccine. I had 17 yrs in at the point of the injections. As soon as I had 20 in I retired before they could inject me with the final 3 injections. I almost didn’t get to retire normally at 20 because at 18 and half years (and after all of the medical problems I’d been having) my military doctor tried to do an MRB on me thus getting me out of the service on medical retirement before my 20 years. I fought it and was able to stay in til I hit my 20. Now they have come up with this microchip bulls***t.

      • s c

        Comrade ‘r,’ here’s your chance to be the first utopian on your block to volunteer and show the rest of Amerika what you’re really worth. DEMAND that you get an injectable chip. We MUST know at all times how – and where – you are. Remember, you’re just a small cog on a big wheel, and it’s time to SACRIFICE, comrade.
        Just think of all the hypocrisy you can get out of your system and do it in ONE day! Lenin, Marx, Stalin and Mao and all the rest of your demigod icons would be so PROUD of you.
        Got what it takes, comrade?

      • Renée

        So Robert Smith, what do you stand for? I’m only asking because I’m curious to know because if you don’t stand for something, you’ll fall for anything. Keep a wary eye, things aren’t always what they seem and just because the gov says it’s good….Well, all I can say is, be careful with your choices.

    • Rebecca

      Patriot, that was my first thought as I read this article. My hair stood on end.

    • Renée

      Patriot, those are my thoughts as well. This is why it is so important that we take control of our own health, don’t go to the doctors, don’t get injections. My brother and I were just talking about why we feel they are pushing vaccines so hard. They are going to have the chips in the needles. I wouldn’t put anything past pharmecuetical companies.
      We are so close to the end of this age. My suggestion to all those out there is get right with the Lord, don’t wait another second!

  • Raggs

    Why are they worried about the health of soldiers if they are put on a battlefield.. Isn’t this kidda a oxy-moron?… STUPID!!!!!!!!

    The first son-of-a-bitch that even tries to implant me… Well end of story!
    I told people ( excuse me I meant SHEEPLE ) that as soon as oblama-care came out they were going to implant everyone.. Well guess what sheeple here it comes.

    • Vigilant

      While I agree that the implantation is a scary and wrong thing to do, please don’t be so dismissive of the health of the fighting force.

      Armed Forces personnel are much more than cannon fodder. When you consider that it was influenza that decimated the forces in WWI, and improper winter clothing that maimed so many in the Battle of the Bulge, you understand that health is a primary consideration in maintaining a viable force.

      As Patton said, you don’t win a war by dying for your country, you win it by making the other poor S.O.B. die for his country.

      • Raggs

        The military is going to be the guinea pigs as a “It’s good for you” and “we know what is best for you”… This is the first step in the convincing of the sheeple that the government is looking out for them but in all reality this is nothing but an individual control method..
        Once this is implemented they will use it for everything from health, wealth, food and work.
        In otherwords they will use it in every aspect of a sheeples life.

    • cawmun cents

      Raggs said,”The first son-of-a-bitch that tries to implant me……”
      What makes you think that there will be an announcement?
      Do you perceive a socialistic gubment as giving you fair warning?
      Or is it like a healthcare bill,in that,in order to know what is in it,you must be subjected to it first?
      Doesnt that frighten you Raggs?
      That you might be co-opted,before you are coerced?
      But there is no evidence that this will occur,says the progressive.
      But I am a moderate(meaning only that they can quickly hop from one side of the fence to another without political affiliation to offer as evidence to their character),the progressive will chide.
      You have to have evidence that the cattlecars are taking folks to the gaschamber,otherwise its just hearsay,right?
      You can lead a man to knowledge but you cant make them think.
      The progressive mantra is,”go along to get along”.
      If that isnt scary to all you out there who can see without having to be being injected first,
      enjoy your dosage.It is well deserved.
      As GALT will tell you,that in the absence of evidence,there is nothing to worry about.

      • Raggs

        Hell of a good post CC.
        And as far as evidence is required forehand…. Well I carry a gun to protect myself from what can happen, I don’t wait until something happens and then buy a gun.

      • cawmun cents

        I carry for obvious reasons….because a whole cop would be too heavy.-CC.

  • Armyblue

    Amazing what people do to soldiers because they have them. Sounds like this is something coming through the “back door.” Don’t blame it on the doctors, look under some rock.

    • 45caliber

      The military has always been “volunteer” test subjects for various government ideas. The “volunteering” comes when they are signed up as soldiers – regardless of whether they enlisted or were drafted. And the soldiers are very seldom informed about what is being tested. I still wonder if the Desert Storm Syndrome is actually something the government was testing out rather than anything the enemy did.

      • Sirian

        The V.A. is one hot test bed too. Desert Storm Syndrome – at times I wonder if it originated there, or here? Follow me?

  • FreedomFighter

    These are the ultimate “OFF” switch

    Send signal, chip turns off unit. The Unit being you, now being tested on our military.

  • laura4basics

  • ranger hall

    Nothing New, Govt has been working on this for many Years, Even using our tax money to finance these projects.
    WHAT good is it going to do, When you are sick you are sick, Sure as hell is not going to help the soldier when he is in combat.
    In the long run the Govt would like to implant Locator chips, They have been wanting to do this with your CC for years, Now they have to go to the CC companys to get your Use and locations.
    They also would like to put trackers in all the Manufactured Vehicles.
    ETC, ETC. Soon the Govt would like to eliminate Money, and force all the People to use CreditCards,This would allow them to track your every move and the money you are spending, The Govt has been working on All Govt. payments be made by electronic transfer to be deposited in Banks or Using Debit Cards.
    Wages,Soc.Sec Etc, Everything to the banks.
    The object is to know how much money you have, Where you spend your money, And what you spend it on. Also your location.

    • Rick in MN (USAF/ret)

      And why do you think they are REALLY building that new information collection and storage facility in Utah. Having worked under NSA for 20 years I know exactly what they are capable of and I have to tell you I’m scared. It is no longer the same NSA it was when I first started working for them. 9/11 changed all of that and now they are using 9/11 as an excuse to monitor every (and I mean “EVERY”) single aspect of our lives. I fear it is already too late. They have been allowed to get too far in their orchestration of a New World Order and the common people have only just begun to wake up to the facts in recent years……woke up too little, too late.

  • Rick in MN (USAF/ret)

    Don’t let them fool you. Rest assured and dollars to doughnuts this is nothing more than a ruse to keep track of veterans through gps (especially) after they leave the military in the long run. The DHS has already deemed anyone who has or is currently serving in the military to be potential threats to the government. In recent weeks news has broke that the DHS is preparing for a major civil war through the revelations of millions of rounds of ammo being ordered, TSA setting up mobile patrols on our nation’s highways, memos and insider information from the DHS stating that they are preparing for a major civil war, compacts in the works with the U.N. that would supplement the gov’t with troops and the infringement upon our rights as Americans, etc. Putting microchips in our soldiers, even if they DO serve the purpose of providing health updates of our military in battle, will no doubt also have GPS tracking ability so if one decides to leave the military and go underground they will still be able to track them down if they wanted to. Don’t fall for the lies and deceptions of this government. They are no longer on the side of the Constitution and what our founding fathers/brothers original vision of a free nation with everyone having the guaranteed right to the pursuit of happiness, liberty, and freedom.

    Mr. Rolley, thank you for bringing this topic to discussion. However, i think you are barely scratching the surface, as i believe it goes far deeper then merely computer chips. To be more specific, what your article is really pointing to, perhaps unknowingly, is Trans-humanism.

    Transhumanism (sometimes abbreviated >H or H+) is an international intellectual and cultural movement supporting the use of new sciences and technologies to enhance human cognitive and physical abilities and ameliorate what it regards as undesirable and unnecessary aspects of the human condition, such as disease, aging, and death.

    Transhumanist thinkers study the possibilities and consequences of developing and using human enhancement techniques and other emerging technologies for these purposes. Possible dangers, as well as benefits, of powerful new technologies that might radically change the conditions of human life are also of concern to the transhumanist movement.

    Although the first known use of the term “transhumanism” dates from 1957, the contemporary meaning is a product of the 1980s, when a group of scientists, artists, and futurists based in the United States began to organize what has since grown into the transhumanist movement. Transhumanist thinkers postulate that human beings will eventually be transformed into beings with such greatly expanded abilities as to merit the label “posthuman”.

    The transhumanist vision of a profoundly transformed future humanity has attracted many supporters as well as critics from a wide range of perspectives.

    Transhumanism has been described by a proponent as the “movement that epitomizes the most daring, courageous, imaginative, and idealistic aspirations of humanity,” while according to a prominent critic, it is the world’s most dangerous idea.

    I would highly recommend that everyone view the you-tube video below!!!!

    DARPA is also building on research done by pharmaceutical companies that are working to develop “smart pills” that could read vitals or even administer medicines from within the body. That in itself says I want nothing to do with it. Big Pharma is good for us? Ya right!!!
